Why Not Linen Fabric for Your Home?

Many people make the erroneous assumption that linen fabric is too delicate, or too difficult to keep clean, for everyday use in the home. Yes, once upon a time, a linen dress or suit was recommended for dry cleaning. The truth is that the types of fabric from which the linings of the garments were made, were the real reason that linen clothing was not suitable for regular washing. This is simply not true any longer. Today linen fabric is as easy to care for as cotton.

Linen fabric comes in a number of weights (the density of the weave), which makes it an ideal fabric for many applications in your home. Dense weight linen fabric is heavier and more opaque, allowing less light to shine through. Lighter weight linen fabric is sheer and allows more light in. When choosing a weight for your linen fabric, first you need to decide exactly how you intend to use it. Ask yourself these questions.

• Will the linen fabric be used for curtains and if so, in what room?

• Are you looking for sheer curtains to complement your drapes or do you need just a light and airy curtain?

• Will the linen fabric be used as a duvet cover or pillow shams? A heavier weight would work better for this.

• Do you want to try some linen towels, rugs, aprons or ready-made curtains?

Whether you buy linen fabric by the meter or pre-made items in linen, you are sure to find everything you need if you shop online. The online experience allows you to view the fabric weave, pattern and color in close-up views. You can order linen fabric samples so that you can feel the material and verify the weave, color and pattern in your own home. You also get the option to purchase made-to-order items, such as curtains, and you will be assured of a perfect fit every time. If you prefer to make your own curtains and other linens, you can just purchase the linen fabric that you prefer, by the meter. You can also order your linen fabric with a fire retardant treatment already in place.

Using linen fabric in your home makes an elegant and classic statement about your good taste in home furnishings. Linen fabric complements any decorating style from casual, to modern, to formal. It works just as well in the beach house, as it does in the formal living area of your primary residence. Linen fabric also has unique qualities that work just as well with denim, as with velvet or silk. It coordinates perfectly with all of your holiday decorating.

Just like cotton, linen fabric is made from the woven fibers of a plant that is grown as an annual crop. This also makes 100% all-natural linen fabric an environmentally friendly fabric that is both green and completely sustainable. If you are concerned for the state of the planet, you should consider moving linen fabric to the top of your list of desirable fabric choices for your home. Seriously, what is not to love about linen fabric?
